Poori Potato Masala

Puri masala is a popular Indian dish made with deep-fried bread (puri) and a spicy potato-based filling (masala). It is commonly served as a breakfast or snack item in India. To make puri masala, the puris are made by mixing wheat flour, salt, and water to form a smooth dough. The dough is then rolled into small rounds and deep-fried until they puff up and become golden brown.

To make the masala filling, boil, peel, and mash potatoes. Sauté onions, chilies, ginger, and garlic. Add spices and cook. Mix in mashed potatoes. Break the puris, fill with masala, and garnish. Puri masala is a popular Indian street food enjoyed with chutney or pickle.
